of obama care, right, and who famously, the citizens of kentucky have reaped the benefit. kentucky now leads the nation in new sign-ups for health insurance, and that would be huge anywhere. it is a particularly huge deal for a state whose population is as unhealthful as kentucky's is. i don't mean any offense by it, but kentucky's population ranks at the bottom or toward the bottom of the nation's health ratings in lots and lots and lots of different categories, and kentucky has a lot of uninsured people. and it's the exact same deal two states over in mississippi, but in these two states, in the same part of the country, with the same health problems in their populations and a lot of the same challenges, one of them, kentucky, is now best in the nation in terms of people getting health insurance, and one of them, mississippi, is now worst in the nation, and not because they wouldn't know how to fix their problem. they knew how to fix their problem, but they stopped fixing it. mississippi has enrolled a smaller percentage of its population than any other state in the nation. they do n
and politics of obama care in general, how is that playing on the ground already? >> it's playing very differently depending on where you are. i'll give you two examples. you probably heard about kentucky where the website is going really well. i know the new york times and "washington post" talked about that a lot. if you go to kentucky, what you hear is that mitch mcconnell is still loud and proud saying we should repeal obama care. and the democratic candidate there running and her name is allison grimes. so far even though kentucky has a good website, she is still very weary of this law. her view is still obama care not going to help you win in kentucky. on the other hand in florida, you have charlie crist, now a democrat, running for governor there. he made one of his big issues the medicate expansion which is popular. florida has not allowed the medicaid expansion. and he thinks it's a winning issue with the democrats in florida. >> the website is working better but still underlying issues only just beginning to make head way like identity verification and enkolment data which is

"the factor" begins right now. hi, i'm bill o'reilly. thanks for watching us tonight. the war on christmas centralizes. that is the suggest of this evening's talking points memo. well, over the years we have taken on the role of protecting the federal holiday of christmas. as you know, there are some americans who are offended by any reference to jesus christ, and that's what the usa celebrates on december 25th, the birth of the baby jesus. president grant signed the holiday into law after congress passed legislation in 1870 acknowledging the country judeo-christian history. so americans officially got the day off from work. everything was swell up until about ten years ago when creeping secularism and pressure groups like
efforts because the government is us. >> he has promoted the obama care act on obama care. >> i know people call this law obama care. >> obama care. >> and that's okay, because i do care. >> back on the hill, republicans are not backing down. >> chairman darrell issa. >> no one is suggesting for a moment that we take government out of health care. >> right. >> that one kicked me in the belly. they have no plan. >> we've been putting deals on the table. >> but nothing's passed. >> the other issue obviously is the economy. >> the economy remains the single biggest concern. >> washington consistently failed to act. >> these asperities have become too big to ignore. >> making an action across the board. >> raising minimum wage, assistance to the long-term unemployed. something of a warning call to the american dream. >> it is not simply a moral claim. >> it's rooted in the personal. >> so we can make a difference on this. >> there are 19 shopping days to find health insurance on the government exchange. 29,000 people reportedly completed the application and selected a health plan on the
, there's been a lot of noise around obama care. and its launch in october. and the failures that float from that. but as you know, joy, i've said from the very beginning of this year that, you know, the party has an opportunity to put some real -- substantive policy on the table to differentiate itself not just rhetorically from this administration, but, you know, and politically, but also in terms of what it hopes to accomplish in something -- with something like obama care. and i think that that opportunity is still there. the question he is, do they take advantage of it going into a new year, where you're going to have on top of, you know, the watch, the death watch by republicans and the hopeful watch by democrats, you know, in the launch of obama care, the budget issues, sequester and all these things begin to take a new shape, beginning in just a few short weeks. >> and, you know, jonathan, a lot of times presidencies are pronounced dead over and over again by the media, every wrong turn -- it's the end of the presidency. so, you know, sort of give us perspective. put the obama a
stopped trying to repeal obama care, their plan seems to be to try to make it not work. for people trying to get insurance, as the whole idea of getting insurance, what that means in terms of their principles is one thing. what that means in terms of strategy, if they're going to tell people not to get insurance, where does that strategy end? where does it lead to, for republicans? >> well, i mean, people are signing up. kentucky is a great example of the success with regard to the medicaid expansion. but if the republican efforts like you just described are geared toward turning away the young invincibles, then what i think is really going on, they're trying to subvert this model of this. if people who are of means are buying in so we can provide that safety net for people who have not yet had insurance. so if the young invincibles are convinced economic-wise, and everybody has to pay more for now expanding the tent for medicaid recipients, i think that is what it is all about so they can put numbers on the board and say see, we told you this is a drain on our economy. >> if they thought
. the details how it went down are straight ahead. >>> and if you thought you were enrolled in obama care, check again. you may not be. the obama administration dropping a bombshell. thousands of americans who recently signed up for insurance may be left without coverage right before the new year and the federal government hasn't told them. we'll tell you the details. >>> and, guys, one of my favorite stories, ever. uh-oh spa getios. the company tweeting out this picture as a tribute to pearl harbor. what was meant as an honor was inappropriate. you have to read the spaghettios headline. >>> "fox & friends" begins right now. >>> and "fox & friends," welcome. the popular show. >> we think it is. >> "fox & friends" christmas party, we'll share photos from that yesterday. >> we shut down the bowling lane yesterday. most of our crew did pretty well, and a segment on how it is the holiday christmas party. i. a lot of folks will wind up going to work hungover. tips how to beat the hangover. >> tips, fake it until you make it. >> that's what i'm doing right now. >> don't announce that. >>> and while yo
'll dig into what's going on and how important millennials are to both obama care and the obama presidency. >>> good morning. i'm chris jansing, and this morning we're looking at what the president calls the defining challenge of our time, income and equality. he's got a lot of statistics to back him up, but consider just this one. between 1978 and 2011 worker compensation has gone up by 5.7%, on average, for most of us, for a ceo, they've gotten a 725% raise. fast food workers say they are living examples of the effect of income and equality. today thousands of them are walking off the job in more than a hundred cities off the country demanding to be paid $15 an hour. >> i actually work two jobs. i work mcdonald's and wendy's and it's still not enough. the cost of living still seems to be rising over my head and still making difficult, daily sacrifices and i work two job, minimum wage is just not enough. >> president obama gave those protesters a boost yesterday. >> we know that there are airport workers and fast food workers and nurse assistants and retail sales people who work their tai
the official restart of the obama care era and the day the window finally closed for good for republicans trying to kill the thing. from the day obama was elected president, republicans have been determined to block health care reform. they got scott brown elected. they took the law all the way to the supreme court, voted dozens of times to defund or repeal it, shut down the government for 16 days, and obama care survived all of it. irony is that while republicans couldn't kill obama care, the administration almost could. >> good evening. president obama now finds himself compared to president george w. bush, as in the problems with the health care plan have become president obama's katrina. >> but today, the website is now fixed enough that it looks like obama care is really here to stay. the repeal strategy is dead and obama care is out of the icu. according to the administration, the error message rate for the front end of the website is less than 1%. that's down from about 6% last month. the site can now handle 50,000 users at a time, 800,000 per day. keep in mind, at one point, the s
there is still no system yet for moving the money from the obama care customers to the insurance companies. the subsidies that the government promised the insurance companies it would give them in order to give you know, coverage to these millions of americans, great, a promise. but unfortunately there was no way to cut the check. that part of it that provides for payment, not built yet. and for days, many journalists have been demanding answers of this administration, wanting to know, you're touting this improved healthcare.gov. how does the system work without a payment mechanism? there is no cash register. what would make the insurance companies actually provide coverage when they haven't been paid? we reported this to you last night. without a way to get payment to those companies how are people going to actually get coverage? so now tonight, at 8:00 p.m., get a report with an answer from reuters news. the administration is going to let the insurance companies estimate what they should get. and then the feds are going to cut them a big check and figure out later what the real amounts a
of governance. >> the challenges with the obama care role out continue, california is making headway. >> since october 1st, about 80,000 people have enrolled in private insurance through the state's exchange. meanwhile, california republicans have been reduced to creating prank websites to prey upon their own constituents desperately seeks out information about health insurance. >> we reached out to all of the members of the assembly and state signal. two california republicans agreed to come on the show and logistics on in the way. joining me now is karen bass. she knows her way around the state's politics. i'm amazed this existed. this is one of those rare times when a headline captured how truly ridiculous a story was. can you believe they did this? >> you know what, this is exactly as you described it, an incredibly new low. but i think that it is an example of desperation. in california, you know that the state is 100% behind covered california in making sure that the affordable care act is implemented. for them to lower themselves to this level i'm shocked, and i'm shocked at the republi
obama care website you hear so much about that had its difficulties, the state as well. rebecca pierce in charge of the troubled website run by the state of maryland resigned friday. according to our baltimore affiliates, some lawmakers are hinting she was forced out. the maryland website signed up just over 3,000 people by november 23rd and only 700 more people one week later. the goal by the end of march is 150,000. lieutenant governor saying things clearly did not go as planned. >> everyone involved in launching the exchange is responsible and that includes me. >> meantime republicans continue to point out the shortcomings of obama care. here is rand paul. >> we're for competition. we're for selling insurance across state lines. above all we're for driving premiums down. the problem under the old system, premiums were too high. under obama care, the premiums are even higher. i don't see any way obama care can work. >> one of the architects of obama care was pressed on another promise the president made that turned out to be true. >> the president said you had unlimited choice of any
for obama care so blame them for your troubles. as jonathan allen writes, if they aren't aware of the law's upside or can't remember it amid the problems with the rollout, democrats will be holding on to a anchor rather than a buoy which leads us back to the presidential pr pitch and peter alexander outside the white house. you just heard the president's speech. do you think the bully pulpit has lost its power at this point? >> reporter: a lot of people who paid attention to the last couple of months for this white house feel they've heard events not too dissimilar to this multiple times. this is the reboot, 3.0. the white house feels strongly this is the time it's going to work. the president made it pretty clear, krystal, you can make fun of me or kind of give me a hard time or website a hard time but you can't give this law a hard time. what was noticeable was the standing ovation when he said this law, affordable care act is not going to be repeal as long as i'm president and that got everybody on their feet, people who benefit from the law at this time. one of the real focuses is the
of americans who think they have health insurance under obama care may discover on january 1st that they do not. after days of refusing to release the stats on the problems plaguing healthcare.gov, the administration has now announced under pressure from the press that the enrollment out of 1 out of every 4 people in the months of october and november were botched. at li 1 out of every 4. now, since then, they say at least 1 out of every 10 federal applications has had problems since the fix, and they think the number is higher in the states, the state exchanges. a reporter pressed the agency in charge of these exchanges, the federal exchange, for a solution to this mess. people don't know. they think they've got the coverage. they don't have the coverage. the insurer has some botched form. it doesn't even have names so it can't call the person to tell them it didn't work for you. and here was the answer. >> but you're not saying that everyone should call? you're not suggesting that, urging them strongly despite the fact you're talking about a potential 1 in 10 error rate going forward. >> i wo
under the aca, but under obama care as a whole. take a listen. >> first of all, this isn't comprehensive because it's excluding the undocumented immigrant and it's excluding the unborn baby, so we begin to bristle at that. and secondly we said, and wait a minute, we who are pretty -- we catholics who are kind of among the pros when it comes to providing health care do it because of our religious conviction and because of the dictates of our conscience and now we're being asked to violate some of those. so that's when we began to worry and drawback and say mr. president, please, you're really kind of -- you're really kind of pushing aside some of your greatest supporters here. >> congressman, as a catholic do you agree with that? the cardinal went on to say they have been on the front end of this, i think he threw out 1919, trying to get our government to take up what it means to have health care in this country. but do you think that catholic supporters are going to hear the cardinal there and say, you know what, maybe i don't think so highly of obama care. >> i just hope that all suppor
. but now we can judge obama care the way we should judge obama care, which is can it sign up a lot of people who need health insurance. the evidence from the states where it's working well, california and kentucky are notable examples, is that the structure of the thing actually can work. and so if they have indeed solved most of these problems, it will probably take another couple of weeks at least to get the website working the way they want, but they made progress and now we can judge it on its merits and not on some tech glitch. >> well, you also have the white house not being quite as definitive as they have been in the past, making these statements about this is where we are, this is what's going to happen. listen to ed rendell, obviously former democratic governor of pennsylvania, on "morning joe" this morning. >> i think there's still a chance for this to achieve its basic goal. that doesn't excuse the mismanagement early. but there's still a chance to achieve a basic goal, which is to drive down the health care curve and also to ensure over 30 million people who don't have
the benefits of obama care. the president heads off this fresh offensive with a speech planned for 2:30 p.m. eastern surrounded by americans who have been helped by the health care law. just announced this morning, this thursday, msnbc "hardball" host chris matthews will have a sitdown with president obama joined by students from american universities. the so-called young invincibles that the white house needs to reach. each and every day between now and december the 23rd, the administration and congressional democrats will hold an event touting a different positive aspect of the health care law, just like those advent calendars so many of us are using this time of year. seems familiar, right? the ones where every day of the month you pop open another door and reveal something special inside? three years after he signed the affordable care act into law, two months after the botched rollout of the health care website, the administration hopes a three-week campaign will remind all americans why they're doing this in the first place. >> how hard of a slog is it going to be for the white hous
people to enroll. but it has always been the case, the political fate of obama care would rest ultimately on its performance, what it did for people's lives and not on the lies and slander directed at it from the right. and while the smears deployed against it get shorter and shorter we have the latest example. did you hear about the guy whose baby was denied coverage under obama care? >> those family plan quotes included myself, my wife, our 7, 5, and 3-year-old, and 18 month-old was left off. the response was no, they don't allow family plans under the age of 8. >> this guy tried to sign his family up for insurance on the new york state exchange and they refused to enroll his 18 month-old baby? obama care is anti-toddler? the story, as you might imagine, got a lot of pickup in the right wing media. the post surfaced again and again all over conservative press and of course landed distraught father on fox news. even the house speaker john boehner climbed on board the obama hates toddlers bandwagon, after saying he learned obama care wouldn't cover his baby. now, hearing this story you ma
